Latest Reviews

"Naomi Clifford is both lucid and informed. She is not afraid to keep things pithy. There is no rambling or banal time-filling... The topics are diverse, with The Door already tackling a promising range of stories... Naomi has a lovely, melodious voice to, which is a plus. A class act and I love it."

"Each episode is about an aspect of women's history that I'd never explored before, which Naomi and Lena talk about in a lively, interesting way... I'm hooked!"
